Delhi Transport Corporation to Get Tata Motors CNG-Electric Hybrid Buses

By Motortrend India Staff   |   23 September,2010

Tata Motors will be providing four CNG-Electric Hybrid Low-floor Starbuses to Delhi Transport Corporation for public transportation in the city of Delhi during the Commonwealth Games period.


The Indian car making company will take care of the maintenance of the Hybrid Tata Starbuses that are equipped with parallel hybrid engine comprising an internal combustion CNG engine and an electric motor using regenerative energy storage system and have maximum speed of 70 kms per hour. This system allows the bus to use power generation simultaneously through both the CNG engine and the electric motor to drive the vehicle and reutilize lost braking energy to recharge the battery.


Tata Motors managing director of India operations Telang said, “We are grateful to the Government of Delhi and the DTC for giving us this opportunity of showcasing hybrid buses in the city of Delhi during the Commonwealth Games”.


Along with electric hybrid buses, DTC will also operate a fleet of 600 Tata CNG buses during the Commonwealth games.
